US-based retailer J. Crew has been in no rush to expand globally. Now the company has finally made its way into Asia with two new Hong Kong stores, which are set to open in May.
The company will open a 3,200-square-foot women’s store in the IFC mall and a 2,100-square-foot men’s store in the Central neighborhood, reports WWD.
“Opening in Hong Kong is an easy decision for us. It’s one of the world’s greatest cities with great energy and great appreciation of style, design and creativity,” said Millard “Mickey” Drexler, chairman and chief executive officer of J. Crew Group Inc.
J. Crew made its Hong Kong debut in October 2012 through a partnership with Lane Crawford, which carries J. Crew products in six stores and on its website.
